.s. senator chuck hagel. in four hours, president obama is expected to name hagel as his choice for defense secretary. that nomination could be bruising. hagel is known for being fiercely independent and the loudest outcry could come from hagel's own fellow republicans. they say he's the wrong choice to oversee the military. the combat veteran, who was badly wounded in vietnam, is openly wary of armed conflict. >> the pain, and we didn't have any medics there with us, and we did have some guys, again, that i think were in pretty bad shape. the morphine and everything was used for them. >> you know, if i ever get out of all this, i am going to do everything i can to assure that war is a last resort. that we, a nation, a people, calls upon to settle a dispute. the horror of it, the pain of it, the suffering of it. >> hagel won two purple hearts for his service in vietnam. he also saved the life of his brother, who was fighting alongside him. hagel has also long called for cuts in defense spending. national correspondent jim acosta is on capitol hill to set the stage. jim, some republicans say
for that report. >>> the obama administration may be stepping up its push for some form of new gun control legislation. but will the president be able to rally the support of congress? most importantly, the american public at the same time? we'll dig deeper with our chief political analyst gloria borger. here's what the president recently said on "meet the press." i'll play the clip. >> we're not going to get this done unless the american people decide it's important. and so this is not going to be simply a matter of me spending political capital. one of the things that you learn, having now been in this office for four years, is the old adage of public opinion. without public opinion there's not something you can't do and wut it there's very little you can't get done in this town. i'm going to be putting my full weight behind it. >> now, remind our viewers why so many democrats have been reluctant to even talk about gun control over these past several years. >> yeah. it's almost 20 years, wolf. it goes back to 1994. that was the big election which republicans took control of the congress.
of some members of the obama administration. mcchrystal writes, this is quote, regardless how i judged the story for fairness or accuracy, responsibility was mine. general mcchrystal also suggests in this new book that michael hastings, that free-lance author of the article, may have been unworthy of his trust and transparency and he describes the plane ride back to d.c. on his way to offer his resignation to president obama after 34 years of service, by writing that he didn't call anyone for advice, he just got on the plane and that was that. something else mcchrystal chronicles in his book are the struggles he had with the white house while he was in charge in kabul. there were apparently major disagreement about how many troops should be sent to war, the beginning of the obama administration and mcchrystal rights that military leaders wanted 30,000, and the president approved 17,000 and 4,000 more added, but only after what sounds like, in this book, some very intense back and forth between the two sides about, with obviously different views how to do the insurgency, back to you in
, and we also have reports that president obama issued a secret directive that address some of the administration and the private sector. regardless, we will see more action on cybersecurity coming out. it is still a difficult process. >> host: we go back to the secret directive. >> guest: it's very difficult to say. neutrality could be a big issue in the next year. they are considering the ftc's rules and accept the sec back to square one, whether it's a push in congress to enact a law, a possibility that i don't see the house republicans going for. >> host: tuesday the court making a decision and having neutrality on the. >> guest: if they uphold the rule, then they will be safe and i will be the standard now. whether the sec has the power regulate the services of the 21st century. >> host: another guess that we have today is eliza krigman. >> guest: thank you for having me on the show. i would agree with brendan sasso. when you look at regulating the internet, which is of course the most important platform and and communications right now, i think the conventional wisdom
crisis. and president obama is expected to make the final touches to his second term economic team today. cnbc's john harwood has more on the changes coming to the u.s. treasury department. >> president obama has already filled out the members of his national security team for the second term. now he's filling out the economic term for a second term including his choice for treasury secretary. later today, we expect the president is going to appoint his current white house chief of staff jack lou as current treasury secretary. jack lew is a veteran of capitol hill and of more than one big major budget negotiations which is exactly what the president is facing right now. he's somebody with a low key demeanor who gets along well with others. his confirmation is expected to be not too difficult. what he doesn't provide is a strong business background or wall street ties, although he did work for citigroup for a while and he doesn't have the experience in financial regulation that tim geithner brought to the job having head of the federal reserve bank of new york during the financial crisis.
being discussed now make sense. martha: president obama may be facing opposition from his own party on this as well. democratic senator heidi heitkamp on this. >> i think you need to put everything on the table but what i hear from the administration and if "the washington post" is to be believed, that is way, way in extreme of what i think is necessary or even should be talked about and it's not going to pass. martha: heitkamp says that the administration needs to focus on mental health care first before starting a debate on gun control. bill: if true the new gun control push comes in stark contrast to president obama's position back in 2008 when candidate obama promised he would protect the rights of all gun owners. >> so i don't want any misunderstanding when, y'all go home and you're talking to your buddies say, ah, he wants to take my gun away. you've heard it here. i'm on television so everybody knows it. i believe in the second amendment. i believe in people's lawful right to bear arms. i will not take your shotgun away. i will not take your rifle away. i won't take your happ
've also had reports the economists reported that president obama addressed a secret executive collaboration between b the administration and the private sector. we will see more action, i think, in the first half. legislation still seems a very difficult proposition. >> host: go back to that secret directive. will that become public at some point or reviewed by congress? >> guest: it's very difficult to say. as i said, it's not something that's been reported quite a bit. there was only a passing reference in the december 8th issue of the economists, but it essentially addresses one of the most controversial aspects of the cybersecurity regime which is how the government helps private sector companies, whether or not that is legal under current law because there are rules against sharing information with the government from private sector companies, especially regarding their climates. again, there's very little known about that. what we do know is the government is very insistent that there needs to be some sort of rules change that would enable the programs that already take
-on-onh president obama. >> he said two times, and president would say let's do it like reagan and tip o'neill, they both brought good faith into it but we don't think that president is, if is politics. good faith did not happen, the speaker dead it is done. that is the best way for house to work. lou: it is a also request of many members of the house, before all of this transspired. the republicans speaker boehner got their tails kicked by the president, and the result is $4 trillion will be added to the national debt. you may have sent a bilge over, but what came back was $4 trillion morrow taxpayer back. this nonsense has to stop at some point. we're going to see the debt ceiling now present itself. are we going to see an ugly repetition was a debacle in 2011 that cost investors, the market cap number, but somewhere around a tri trillion dollars, we don't need any more of that. >> no, but at the end of the day there will be more fights, this is where we are as a nation. when you are 16.5 trillion in debt we'll have fights like this, i best compare it to a marriage that husband and wif
35% some level down to 25 and the other candidate, president obama, the proposed to lower the top corporate racks rate to 25%. it was a strong bipartisan effort in lowering the tax -- the corporate tax rate primarily because of reasons of international competitiveness. the united states is quite out of line with much of the rest of the world about what our tax rate is. on the other hand, we are also out of line on how generous our tax breaks are. what president obama has proposed in broad terms is a rolling back corporate tax breaks as a way to help pay for lowering the top rate. does -- it is something that dave camp and others have in congress have raised for their role is issues about how far we can go and rolling back tax breaks when companies and businesses know that what you are trying to do and different businesses have different opinions. the political discussion has primarily been a round revenue- neutral business or corporate tax reform in which rolling back the tax breaks would be a pay for to bring the top rate down. >> do you think there is a way we can do corporate r
.s. and 13 abroad. many were living with their abusers. the obama administration has unveiled new rules allowing undocumented immigrants to avoid lengthy separations from u.s. family members while applying for legal status. current u.s. policy forces immigrants who entered the country without authorization to return to their native countries for visas, then bars them from re-entering the u.s. for as long as a decade. starting in march, family members who can demonstrate extreme hardship if separated from u.s. family members may be eligible for a waiver allowing them to re-enter the country more quickly. the new policy could potentially spare hundreds of thousands of families from being kept apart. new scientific research has shed further doubt on claims about the environmental benefits of the natural-gas drilling process known as fracking. researchers with the national oceanic and atmospheric administration and the university of colorado say methane may be escaping from gas sites at much higher rates than previously thought. data suggests as much as 9% of total methane produced may be l
a so-called war on women. it worked, so why do females make considerably less than men in the obama administration? and where are the women on the white house staff? look at that picture. we have a new all-female company at the top of the hour. they're going to weigh in on that one, it will be new at 10. nicole, what's this about lululemon losing today? >> that's right. downgraded over at credit suisse this morning. and you're seeing lululemon down about 4 1/2%. however, we should note, this is a company that has had quite a run over the last 52 weeks, up about 45%, but they are getting a downgrade over at credit suisse today. so not good news for this retailer and they have their own retail shops and they sell those great yoga pants you know that i'm a big fan and so much more. stuart: you should have seen the presents that were unwrapped in my household when i got four daughters on christmas morning. >> with their lululemon in there? >> i believe there was a couple there. >> oh, good stuff. and it has the holes for the thumbs that feel great, put them on and ready for a nice worko
to you. connell: more to come on that breaking news. rich live at the white house. dagen: president obama will nominate his chief of staff jack lew as the next treasury secretary a little more than two hours from now. connell: joining us now is from the "wall street journal." >> he will be directing economic policy for the president and he's a long-time washington insider. he worked for tip o'neil. he worked for bill clinton. he's worked on the budget for president obama. [talking over each other] >> there is a revolving door there. he did go in 09 and he came out with a lot of money despite the fact that citi bank was limping along and had to be helped out by the government. dagen: when he worked just as one example in the clinton administration he was considered reasonable but not now. why? >> i think the big part of it is how he performed when he worked for president obama in the first term. but it's also i think most people expect him to be very much like an alter ego of the president. he subscribes to the ideas that the president has, that the big problem in this country is not how t
